It seems like forever ago that I updated my blog. Life around here has been pretty crazy. For those of you who don't know.... October was a pretty crazy month for us. On Oct. 1, Scott went in for a routine colonoscopy. I had been bugging him to go for a while now, so I was happy that he finally listened and made an appointment. As Scott was waking up the Dr. came in to talk to us and tell us about the procedure. You know it's not good when the first thing out of the Dr.'s mouth is "You just save your husbands life" I seriously thought he was joking and then he said it again. My stomach just sank and I quickly realized they found "something" Oh boy, my worst fear ( The week before Scott's appointment I had A LOT of anxiety and I couldnt really figure out why). Turns out they found a large "mass" in his colon that had to be surgically removed. Whoa..... that is totally not what I had anticipated. After that meeting we spent the next few weeks, meeting with surgeons, having more tests and then finally Scott had surgery on Nov 2 to remove the mass. Dr. Griffin was awesome!! He performed a Robotically Assisted laprospopic Bowel Resection (I know... right!!) Basically they went in cut the tumor out of his colon and re-stitched it back together. Scott looked like he had been in a knife fight. They made 4 small incisions and 1 medium incision in his belly. Anyway... ALL IS WELL!! We found out that they were able to remove all of the cancer and since we caught it early, it hadn't spread anywhere else in his body, so all is good. Scott has bounced back pretty quick and he is basically back to normal. His wounds are healing and aside from yearly colonoscopies he should be fine :) The moral of the story... get your colonscopy when you turn 50 - if not before. It really can save your life!!!
So, now that I can breathe again, it's back to life as normal. This little goober is keeping us on our toes!

I cannot believe that summer has come and gone already. Where did it all go? We ended the summer the same way we started it by having a family party at the swimming pool.
We put the floaties on Miss M. and sent her on her way. She LOVED it!

I can't belive that my baby sister is 20 years old today! I can remember thinking when she was born that when she turns 20 I would be 36 years old, and that seemed sooo OLD. Well, here we are 20 years later and 36 doesn't seem so old any more!

Miss M. has been quite adventurous lately. The other day in an attempt to get her binkie away from her I threw it in her crib. She has never even tried to get in or out of her crib, so I thought that was a great idea.
She must have really wanted that binkie because in a split second she hopped up and climbed into her crib. She was so proud of herself until she realized she couldnt get out of her bed once she got in to it.
For the last few days we have been playing this game of in and out. She would climb in her bed and then say "Mommy, Mommy, MOMMY" until I would come and get her out. It appears that she has tired of that game, because tonight she learned how to climb OUT of her bed. I guess she is telling us that it is time for a big girl bed (good thing Ma has one ready for her!)
